The 25 Coziest Cabins, Chalets, and Lodges Near Snow Mountains in SoCal

If you’re traveling to the mountains for a vacation or to enjoy some snow play near Los Angeles, you’re probably looking for an amazing place to stay. We bet you’re hoping for a comfortable cabin, a cozy chalet, or a delightful lodge for you and your family, so we’ve made a list of some amazing choices for you.

The mountains near Los Angeles are not far away in actual driving time, but they feel like they’re a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of City Life, and especially in the Winter, since they’ve usually got snow, it could hardly be more different.

What could be better for a getaway than to find a place with essentially the opposite climate of our normal Los Angeles life? We hope you enjoy your trip, whether you plan to ski, snowboard, or just have snowball fights and play.

We chose cabins and chalets that can sleep a family of 4+, and hotels and lodges that have family amenities. And we separated them all by region.
